We have new books for kids and adults, fidget toys, game packets, and more...  In addition, two iPads are provided by a grant from the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism, an Allison Keller iPad Grant.

A Friendly Reminder...

Each month we get many more calls than we have spots in Children's Programs.  Please remember, if you do not show up for a program, you have taken a spot away from another child who wanted to participate.
The Children's Staff asks that if you cannot attend a program you have signed up for you give us a call to let us know.
